SCOPE
______________________________________________________________________________________

Research on Agents and Multi-Agent Systems has matured during the last decade and many effective applications of this technology are now deployed. PAAMS provides an international forum to present and discuss the latest scientific developments and their effective applications, to assess the impact of the approach, and to facilitate technology transfer. PAAMS started as a local initiative, but has since grown to become the international yearly platform to present, to discuss, and to disseminate the latest developments and the most important outcomes related to real-world applications. Right now, PAAMS is classified as B2 by CAPES Qualis CC-Events and C by CORE Ranking. It provides a unique opportunity to bring multi-disciplinary experts, academics and practitioners together to exchange their experience in the development and deployment of Agents and Multi-Agent Systems. PAAMS intends to bring together researchers and developers from industry and the academic world to report on the latest scientific and technical advances on the application of multi-agent systems, to discuss and debate the major issues, and to showcase the latest systems using agent based technology. It will promote a forum for discussion on how agent-based techniques, methods, and tools help system designers to accomplish the mapping between available agent technology and application needs. Other stakeholders should be rewarded with a better understanding of the potential and challenges of the agent-oriented approach.

DEMONSTRATIONS - IBM Award
__________________________________________________________________________________________

PAAMS'21 includes a special track for demonstrations. Demonstrations are intended to exhibit practical applications of multi-agent systems and will be a very useful tool in order to complement the regular program with practical examples of particular interest in the field of Artificial Intelligence.

The author/s must write a paper formatted according to the LNCS-LNAI template, with a maximum length of 4 pages and following the next structure: Introduction, Main purpose, Demonstration, Conclusions and References.

All accepted demonstrations will be included in PAAMS Proceedings as a paper, published in Springer.

During PAAMS, authors will have to show their demonstrations. The organization will provide a printed poster of the article, WIFI connection and space on a shared table with other competitors.

The best demo in PAAMS 2021 will be awarded with a 2000€ price, given by IBM.
